Liberal Democrat Councillor Barry O'Leary has vowed to continue to highlight the problem with the state of our local country roads and their funding.
Sadly Somerset County Council plans have seen and will continue to see potholes staying bigger for longer, whilst misaligned paving goes on left to decline for what seems like an age.
Local Liberal Democrats have been inundated with local residents reports of potholes; Councillor Barry O'Leary has reported many potholes to the Highways Department long before his election to the District Council in 2019. If you know of a pothole send us an email to: [email protected]
We have also had the recent destruction of our local lanes at Leighton Lane, Easton Lane, Bagborough Lane and Maesdown Hill, affecting the communities of Evercreech, Stoney Stratton, Pylle, Prestleigh, Pilton and beyond.

In I agree that the state of our communities roads is unacceptable and that Somerset County Council has h failed o maintain and renew our vital B road network, drains and our verges.
This has been made even worse since recent works on Prestleigh Hill
1. I therefore urge County to listen to residents and prioritize roads used by local communities and put on place a proper resurfacing plan that will connect villages and value villages as much as our county A roads.
2. A proper plan to make good the damage done in and around the Village of Evercreech through the many road diversions and the unique pressures placed on our local B road network due to our proximity to two festival sites that are needed to attract and sustain the thousands of vital visitors to our community forced to used on roads designed in the age well before the modern motorcar, or this sheer volume of traffic.
